Power line in Coalville is debated

Rocky Mountain Power is trying to obtain permits to construct a new transmission line from near southwest Wyoming to a new substation near Coalville.

"But it just doesn’t fit," Summit County spokesman Cliff Blonquist said about the plan to run the transmission line along Chalk Creek Road. "They’re going to bisect [Coalville] and it’s going to end up in Park City."

Officials at Rocky Mountain Power want to continue the new line from North Summit to the Silver Creek substation at the intersection of State Road 248 and U.S. 40.
